I've used Mail::Box, Mail::Message and their sibling modules to
connect to an Exchange server using POP3. The script parses through
the email headers for specific subjects headings. It then cycles
through all the attachments looking for an Excel file.

However, I am wondering where to start. Is there some sort of utility that runs with perl that does some of this?  If someone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
